Black & Blue (France), 1985. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
A great lost chapter in the career of organist Lonnie Smith – a session recorded in the 80s, but done with the simple straightforward soul jazz groove of earlier sides on Muse and Prestige! Lonnie's working here in a loose and free trio format – with Melvin Sparks on guitar and the ... read more CD

Wadada Leo SmithRed Chrysanthemums – Live 1977 ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1977. New Copy ... $11.99
An unreleased set of solo performances from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – one that we'd rank right up there with his most adventurous work of the 70s! Smith comes across wonderfully on the record – full of soul and imagination, and easily as impressive on his solo instruments as ... read more CD

Exclusive/Sackville, 1967. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98

Mark SoskinHearts & Minds ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Pianist Mark Soskin has played on dozens of records over the decades, yet has given us just a handful as a leader – which is quite a shame, as his work on an album like this is totally great! The pianist has this warmth and flow right from the start – the kind of understated ... read more CD

Mark SoskinLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99

Soule MondeMust Be Nice ... CD
Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $4.99 13.99
A tight little duo who don't seem to need anyone else – given the tremendous power of their work on drums and Hammond B-3! These guys are funky jazz at the core, but also open to lots more ideas too – and really blow us away with their work here, which seems to include no other ... (Deep Funk, Jazz) read more CD

Trippin' N' Rhythm, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The first we've heard from the Sounds Of A&R – and we're guessing the start of a great legacy in years to come!

Melvin SparksTexas Twister/Melvin Sparks '75 ... CD
Eastbound/BGP (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Wicked work from the legendary Melvin Sparks – 2 of his rare post-Prestige sides for the short-lived Eastbound jazz label! Texas Twister is one of Melvin's funkiest albums ever – done in a style that's even harder and rawer than his work for Prestige! The sound is lean and often a bit ... read more CD

Emanem (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Early work by the Spontaneous Music Ensemble as a large ensemble – and a set that's especially noteworthy for its use of the human voice!

Spontaneous Music EnsembleWithdrawl ... CD
Emanem (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
The cover image almost reminds us of The Beatles playing at The Cavern in Liverpool during their early years – and the music here is from roughly the same period, and represents some seminal early music from the Spontaneous Music Ensemble! The set features unreleased recordings from that ... read more CD

Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99

Colin SteeleDiving For Pearls – Jazz Interpretations Of The Pearlfishers Songbook ... CD
Marina (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
A jazz record, but one with a pedigree in pop – given that the songs here are all instrumentals based on tunes penned by the excellent (and overlooked!) Pearlfishers group! The Pearlfishers original songs are completely sublime – almost a Brian Wilson mode for our generation, but much ... read more CD

Sonny StittBroadway Soul ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $9.99
A lost Sonny Stitt session from the 60s – but wonderfully swinging, and with a groove that really works well! The album's a set of Broadway tunes played jazz-wise – but in the hands of Stitt, they come up wonderfully – stretching out with soulful intensity that's mighty nice, ... read more CD

Sonny StittDumpy Mama ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A pretty wild album from legendary saxophonist Sonny Stitt – one that's quite different from the bop of his roots, but equally groovy in its own sort of way! The album is a handful that Sonny cut in the 70s with an electric vibe – similar to his work for Chess and Prestige records ad ... read more CD

Kunihiko SuganoOpa Brazil ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
A really groovy album from pianist Kunihiko Sugano – a set that has the leader working on Fender Rhodes, but often with a touch that has the sharpness of an acoustic piano – which is then underscored by some strong use of acoustic percussion as well! The album's definitely got the ... read more CD
